Investment Portfolios for HNW Clients On-Demand

Investment Portfolios for HNW Clients On-Demand

Portfolios for HNW clients are more sophisticated than the average affluent client. They require enhanced access to asset classes and products, such as private equity, alternatives, impact investing, and derivatives. These portfolios may also involve leverage and lending and require an elite advisor to manage all the moving parts.

Included Sessions

Presented by Chris Wilson, CFA, Voya Investment Management

The global macroeconomic picture is in flux. Central bank policy, low interest rates, deflationary pressure, and geopolitics make it challenging to position portfolios confidently even for sophisticated investors. Learn the critical factors in play for a multi-strategy portfolio, how HNW investors might think about their fixed income allocation, and how advisors can add value during a period of uncertainty.

Presented by Bob Rice, Macquarie Investment Management

As new products make PE available to a much broader range of your clients, the question remains: which styles of PE are best suited for today's environment? Mega-cap LBOs, mid-market buyouts, growth equity, mezzanine, and venture all display different return and risk characteristics, and their underlying structures respond differently to various economic scenarios. How do you choose, and how do you implement those choices across the client base?

Bob Rice, senior advisor to Macquarie Investment Management, will address key learning objectives, including the differences between styles of private equity and their return/risk characteristics; key considerations in manager selection and diligence; and how registered and unregistered product structures impact deployment.

Presented by Stuart E. Lucas, Wealth Strategies Partners, LLC

This session will discuss the strategic design of taxable investment portfolios and where family offices may be searching for opportunity and addressing risk given the roaring stock market, very low interest rates, uncertain economic impact of the ongoing pandemic and the potential for higher income, capital gains and estate taxes.
